Course Overview

Traumatic dental injury especially in childhood is a common problem. It occurs usually around 8-12 years old, in a male to female ratio of 2:1 / 3: 1 and affects 70% maxillary central incisors. Coronal fracture of enamel and dentin without pulp involvement is the frequent situation a restorative dentist has to manage, utilizing direct adhesive procedures. Successful shade matching in composite restorations is considered as one of the most difficult task to accomplish. It is based on a subjective comparison between a shade tab and the natural tooth and as direct composite restorations are realized within one single appointment, no "try-in" is possible. Therefore the search for a reliable shade matching procedure coupled with a predictable layering technique is still going on. The aim of this presentation is to present an individual three-dimensional layering technique with contemporary composites. This novel procedure is indicated in moderate to extensive crown fractures and is considered predictable after eliminating the parameter of thickness while layering restorative materials.
